We are an organisation that leads and support the international school sector for New Zealand. Our membership includes over 400 schools around the country, and most international students come through our member schools.

We believe that supporting agents and strengthening their relationships with schools is essential for a strong international school sector.



In 2024, agents will be able to formally register with SIEBA and through registration, gain access to a range of support and assistance. Services for agents will include:

  • Access to selected resources such as agency and enrolment contracts
  • Monthly newsletter offering sector and industry updates
  • Reference checking on registration (required for agents to work with NZ Schools)
  • Priority registration at onshore agent marketing forums
  • Student Placement Service where agents can create a listing to connect to our member schools 
  • Selected workshops and other professional learning and development
  • Webinars to explore matters relevant to agents


Cost to Register

There is an annual fee of $150 + GST
